No. 2 Kentucky set a school record on January 16, 1996 with 86 points in the first half and finished with the highest-scoring road game in its 93-year history, a 129-97 Southeastern Conference victory Tuesday night over Louisiana State at Baton Rouge, La.

Forward Antoine Walker scored 28 of his game-high 32 points in the first half as Kentucky took an 86-42 lead at halftime. It was 13th highest-scoring half in Division I history, with the record being 97 by Oklahoma against U.S. International in 1989. The Wildcats’ previous high for a half was 75 in a 143-66 victory over Georgia in 1956.
